This was our third stay at the Eaton. Unfortunately, it will be our last. Such a shame to see this once lovely little hotel going to the dogs! Positives : Great location on the canal, decent breakfast, lovely receptionist Negatives : No hot water in the shower, bedside light hanging off the wall, not hoovered properly, room badly in need...

Stayed overnight one night when arriving late in Chester and picking up rental car the next day. Convenient location - walking distance to station, and close to centre of town for those staying for the city itself. Room was small but comfortable - bathroom needed some maintenance, but overall I got what I wanted, which was a cheap, comfortable and... More

We booked a 2 night stay in The Eaton last minute and never took much notice of the 2* rating, however I wish I had...as it was simply 2* and no more. Payment for the full stay was taken on arrival, before we had seen the room. Which I slightly regret as I may have challenged it otherwise. We later... More

Great location and good breakfast and I am afraid that is all the plus points, this is not a hotel it is a B&B with a small bar. It's is run by a skeleton staff who were very pleasant but there are too many negatives here. All the lighting is controlled by motion activated switches and they don't stay on... More

Looked for somewhere to accommodate me and three friends for a night out in Chester and we booked the Eaton last minute. In terms of location and price it was great, we had a family room which was £130, and it was only a 10minute drunken stumble from all the bars. Have to say it was fairly outdated inside, rooms...

I stayed here for a weekend at Chester races. When booking I required a clean room in a great location.. Which is exactly what I got. Firstly, the location is perfect. The hotel is right in the thick of it with everything in walking distance. The room itself was very good. Although I discovered a few things to be loose... More

The hotel is a convenient location would booked at the last minute and there wasn't a lot of choice. You have accept that many of the rooms are on the main road and are a little noisy, we stayed on a Friday night and it was a little loud. The rooms really do need money spending on them, my first...

I am not one to write bad reviews however I was not able to have the opportunity to discuss our terrible experience with the management directly. When making the initial booking I was asked to provide credit card details in order to reserve the room and these details would be used in the if we did not turn up. Having... More
